Exclusive: Grand Opening of Adorable Eco Vegan E-Boutique: Plus 20% off!
Published on October 6, 2011 by chloejo · No Comments
A girl should never have to sacrifice her sense of style for her strong set of beliefs! Whether you are vegan, passionate about the environment and/or fair trade practices, there is no need to settle when it comes to quality or style when purchasing bags, shoes & accessories. An adorable new e-boutique, Compassion Couture, has come to town!
Compassion Couture was started by two fashion-forward sisters/BFFs, Jill & Tracey Spiritus. Both being non-meat eaters with a sincere concern for the welfare of animals and the planet, they found it difficult to locate stores that offer items made of high-quality materials that follow the latest fashion trends, while also being 100% animal friendly and ethical. Often spending hours scouring the web for brands that fulfilled their needs, or settling for items that were “vegan by default” (made from non-sustainable materials cheaper than leather then sold as “vegan”); they took the plunge towards developing their shop in the hopes that they could help women in similar predicaments. After around 10 months of hard work and planning, Compassion Couture was born. The e-boutique is a one-stop shop that makes it simple and easy to find items that are a balance between your values and feminine passion for style. The site is 100% animal friendly and only offers products by labels that place a strong emphasis on producing their goods in a sustainable and ethical way. Items include an array of fashion-forward high quality shoes, bags, wallets, belts and other accessories.
